Madrid from the heights

Madrid

From Madrid to heaven… or Madrid from the heights. Complete your visit to the capital discovering the best views of the city from the height. Here you are some ideas:

Mirador de Madrid, located on the eighth floor of Palacio de Cibeles, offers unique views to Fuente de Cibeles, the city centre and Salamanca district.

From the rooftop of Círculo de Bellas Artes, at 56 metres high, you can see the city and all the urban framework. A place that offers privileged views to the bustling streets of Alcalá and Gran Vía. Moreover, and definitely, the views will be more enjoyed eating something or drinking a cocktail at its restaurant, the Tartan Roof.

Faro de la Moncloa, located in the very heart of the university campus, counts with a viewpoint at 92 metres high. Furthermore, it counts with glassed-in elevator. From the top of the building you will be able to distinguish emblematic monuments and buildings such as Catedral de la Almudena, Palacio Real or Cuatro Torres. But this option may not be the most appropriate if you have vertigo…

Not as close as the other points, we also want to mention El Cerro del Tío Pío. From this park, also known as parque de las siete tetas –park of the seven boobs- owing to the shape of its hills, you will be able to capture a beautiful picture.
